Bodie and His Family Receive a Helping Hand

BodieBlogBodie is a gorgeous, happy four year old Golden Retriever.  He always had a small cyst on his chest/neck area and the veterinarian said it was no big deal.  But two weeks ago it suddenly grew to the size of a baseball overnight.  Bodie's temperature spiked, he wouldn't eat and was very lethargic.  His elderly owners took him to an urgent pet care facility.  His human mom is on disability and his human dad has terminal cancer.  They only had $200 to their name.  That would not even be enough to get Bodie through the night much less get him the ongoing care and operation he would need.  They thought they were going to have to have him put to sleep that night as their only option to relieve his suffering.  After the veterinarian recommended a call to HUA Bodie was soon started on an IV with fluids, antibiotics and antiemetics.  Bodie spent a week in the animal hospital recovering from his infection.  The cyst is on Bodie's jugular vein so the operation will be very delicate.  He just started eating again and was released to go home.  His family was so very grateful to have their boy back.  He is one of the only bright spots in the lives of a dear elderly couple who are suffering so much.  Bodie is not yet well enough for surgery.  He will have follow up visits, blood tests and more biopsies before he is ready for that.  A very skilled surgeon was found who will perform the operation when Bodie is ready.  The costs are being covered by Hearts United for Animals.  Updates on Bodie will be posted on our Facebook page.

Donations for Bodie's care can be made online by clicking here or you can contribute through Bodie's t-shirt fundraiser that runs through July 10th by clicking here.

Bodie and his family send their deepest gratitude for your support that is helping to save Bodie's life.
